The wait for Black Friday is almost overーwhile Thanksgiving is undoubtedly a meaningful holiday, it’s hard to deny the fact that many of us have been waiting for the bout of fantastic sales that come along with the weekend. Ever year around this time, Black Friday sees countless deals offered by retailers from all across the country; from pyjamas to 24K gold jewelry, items tend to be significantly marked down immediately following the American holiday.
Considering all the amazing bargains to be had, it’s not uncommon for individuals to scour the Black Friday ads weeks prior to the actual event; similarly, many eager shoppers also wait in line in front of their favourite stores before their opening, for a chance to snag the hottest buysーas quantities are more often than not, limited. While some see Black Friday as an opportunity to grab inexpensive Christmas presents, others prefer purchasing items for themselves; either for personal- or home- use. In this article, we’ll be focusing on something that probably only those living in colder climates have had experience withーsnow blowers.
If you’ve lived in an area where snow is common in the winter, you’re most likely familiar with the necessary chores that come with the holiday-esque sceneryーin particular, the shovelling of snow. Although the white flurries can be a pretty sight, they cause roads to be slippery and sidewalks to be icy; as a result, it’s inevitable that we sometimes find ourselves having to pick up a shovel to remove snow from a designated area. Thanks to the modern development of the snow blower however, the removal of snow has become significantly less of a chore. Powered by either gasoline or electric power, these machines effectively throw snow from one location to another, for them to be hauled away later. Did you know that these powerhouses were actually patented back in the 19th century?
Although they’re incredibly useful, these snow-throwing devices can be extremely pricey; it’s not uncommon for a high quality snow blower to run you well over $500. Despite their costliness however, they can feel like a godsend in the unfortunate event of a blizzardーwho wants to have to shovel away 3 feet of snow? While snow blowers are typically expensive, many models are fortunately discounted during Black Friday. Around this time of year, many are put out by big-name stores for extremely affordable prices. For instance, Sears, Blains Farm Fleet, True Value, Ace Hardware, Overstock, to name a few, all have these machines for sale this upcoming Thanksgiving. To make your shopping a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of the various snow blower deals available this Black Friday, here on this page.
